The 8 Mind Frames of Teachers Who Impact Student Learning - FRACTUS LEARNING | Differentiated curriculum | Scoop.it
In 2008 Professor John Hattie undertook the largest ever meta-analysis on the effect of different factors on educational outcomes. The results of this study formed the basis for his hugely popular book Visible Learning and the educator focused Visible Learning for Teachers. A fascinating study with many practical applications, Hattie was able to show that school leaders who develop the below 8 mind frames were more likely to have a major impact on student learning.

10 Ways to Personalize Learning - Getting SMART

10 Ways to Personalize Learning - Getting SMART | Differentiated curriculum | Scoop.it
“Personalized learning” – that’s quite a loaded phrase. But, if you break down the two words, you can see that when simplified its better understood as a “personal” way to “learn.” Thus, personalized learning is student centered. It’s an educational approach where the learner (i.e., the student) drives their own learning.

Personalized learning is when the learner takes responsibility for their learning by setting appropriate goals that align with their interests and talents. They monitor progress and stay motivated and challenged to meet those goals.

For educators who want to focus on the learner, here are 10 tips to help you personalize learning for students.

"The Education category of the App Store features an overwhelming number of apps, great for both parents and teachers.

Each subject search displays a diverse and colorful selection of apps to cover just about anything you’ll be adding to your digital curriculum. However, with so many choices, it’s hard to discern a download-worthy app from the next. (A simple search for math apps yielded well over 200 results.) Here is a list of educational iPad apps by subject matter that you may not have heard of before, but are certainly worth a look."

Engaging your learner - four dos and four don'ts - Clive on Learning | Differentiated curriculum | Scoop.it
Whether you’re teaching in a classroom, developing some e-learning or producing a video, you’ll be concerned about engaging your learners. Why? Because, if learners aren’t engaged they’ll pay little attention to what you’re offering and they’re very unlikely to retain anything. You can spend a fortune trying to engage learners, but the secrets to engagement do not demand you break the bank. Here are four dos and four don’ts:

Google is kind of a big deal, to say the least. The tech giant has blossomed over the course of the past decade, quickly becoming part of the global lexicon, and establishing itself as an official verb in the dictionary. Although the company wears many hats, its most valuable asset has always been its phenomenal search engine.

Part One… 12 Resources to Discover & Curate Digital Curriculum

Part One… 12 Resources to Discover & Curate Digital Curriculum | Differentiated curriculum | Scoop.it

This is the first post in a series on resources to discover and curate digital curriculum. In this post Michael Gorman introduces three tools in depth: Symbaloo, Diigo and Evernote.

"This series is really not centered on all the amazing resources available, but rather how to we find quality material and how do we archive it so we can find it later."

Although you may be aware of these three tools Gorman many show you techniques to using them that are new. The post explores these tools with both the teacher and student in mind. Based on your AUP these tools have the potential to be used by both groups. 

If you wonder why you would want your students to become digital curators think about how it would require them to "be informed and practice proper digital citizenship."
